the importance of that state by now. and two points ahead of governor romney in florida. but within the margin of error. also, early voting in florida ends today after the number of early voting days in that state is cut by half this year. 25 million people have already voted early in 34 states and washington, d.c. >>> and back to the frenetic pace on the campaign trail. both candidates have already held rallies in new hampshire, iowa, and wisconsin. >> you do want to be able to trust your president. you want to know -- you want to know that -- that your president means what he says and says what he means. after four years of president, you know me. you may not agree with every decision i have made. you may at times have been frustrated by the pace of change, but you know what i believe. you know where i stand. >> made a lot of promises, but those promises he couldn't keep. and the difference between us, he made promises he couldn't keep. i'm making promises i have kept and i will keep them for the american people. i have a clear and unequivocal message, and that is america is about to come ro
in the battle ground state of florida, but not before many counties saw a record, gigantic lines. and phil keating joins us from tampa, and the numbers. it was crazy yesterday, phil. >> absolutely, reportedly six hour waits at certain locations in miami-dade county outside of the precinct on friday, three and a half hours all day long to stand in line, shuffle forward and finally cost their ballot. the numbers are big despite the fact in 2008 there was early voting on this sunday before election day, this year, there is not. and that's been a point of convention, democrats and democrat leaning groups have called that voting suppression engineered by the republican dominated legislature and governor's office in the state of florida. however, despite those cries, the numbers have been as good as they were back in 2008. take a look at numbers right now. nearly 4 million, this is through friday, nearly 4 million floridians voted early, by early voting or absentee ballot. and the way it breaks down, the most early voters stand in line and cast their ballot, 45% of those people are registered de
. how many stops did you have? >> we did about 20. we did ohio and florida and we just finished in pennsylvania. >> you had five stops? >> norm coleman and i did all of them together. we had john voigt with us today in pennsylvania. and i was very encouraged by pennsylvania. i campaigned there a lot. i was, i was there in '04 when we came two points away from taking it. i was very encouraged by pennsylvania. i think there's a tremendous amount of activity there. the party is really energized. every group that we met with the crowds are really enthusiastic. they feel like they are relevant all of a sudden, all the talk about ohio, all the talk about florida, all of a sudden they are relevant. i think the party people, i think we have the enthusiasm factor on our side so we can pull it out. >> i have gotten the internals, i have seen them. right now it's tied. you saw the crowd last night. very interesting as we come down to the wire remember one thing i think most people will acknowledge, charles krauthammer said this and others, romney had all the momentum coming out of the deba
that marco rubio had this plan of his own. governor romney had been campaigning in florida with marco rubio and was asked do you agree with what senator rubio was saying on immigration and he hesitated. he said i have got to think about it. i have to wonder if that wasn't a moment that might have changed the course of a lot of things. >> it could be. i think one of the realities here and mary catherine was touching on this. i think you will see core constituencies rush to people like marco rubio and say tell us how you would do this. i think it raises rubio's stature within the party. you have to look at the business community and people in the high-tech sector and wall street who want immigration reform to get the best brains into the country and are willing to make concessions if you tell them we can get the best people here. >> the system is a mess and horribly complex just as most things in the federal government. but this is not some sort of quick fix where you say you are for this and it involves the problems. it's policy were the on issues barack obama would have paid a price or brag
we think we will be officially the winner in florida. as of right now, total turnout and number of voters has increased in colorado, iowa, minnesota, nevada, north carolina, and wisconsin. it looks like it decreased in 35 of 49 battleground states. the total turnout may be higher in 2008 when all the votes are finally counted. as we planned for, total minority vote share increased to 28%. our coalition turnout, women made up about the same percent of the electorate as in 2008. we got 65% of women voters. for lots of reporting about youth turnout, they continue to turn out and take control of their future. in virginia, we increased our youth percentage. in florida, voting rates increased to 16%, and we got 61% in 2008 and 66% in 2012. african american turnout and support was as high or higher than ever. in ohio, african-americans increased from 11% to 15%. we got somewhere between 9% and 97% in every battleground state. 71% of latino vote, the highest percentage of latino vote since 1996. in florida increase from 14% in 2008 to 17% in 2012. we increased our vote share in florida
beating romney by 11 binders. >> florida tonight remains too close to call. so where's the good news, you say? here it is. the election was decided without them. >> you don't listen to anything i say! i have been bringing you the truth! hot and hard now for seven years. how do you repay me? four more years of hope and change! >> good day. i'm andrea mitchell live in new york. president obama crossed the finish line. now he faces the same entrenched political opposition and little time before very big deadlines. joining me now, chuck todd, host of "the daily rundown" and matt map wizard. the president said during the campaign he would veto legislate that tried to avoid or kick this crisis down the road by simply extending the bush tax cuts for rich people. does he still insist he will veto any such plan? >> well, don't forget he's always -- harry reid's the pocket veto. the democrat senate, the pocket veto, why he hasn't had to veto anything if something can't get through the senate, it's not going to debt to him, number one. look, i think the white house was pleasantly surprised and open
. to be steadily losing votes in an expanding demographic is a recipe for failure. florida senator marco rubio, the son of cuban immigrants and a republican, suggests the problem is both tonal and substantive. >> it's hard to make an economic argument to people who think you want to deport their grandmother. >> and then there's the fema vote. established in 1920. decisive in 2012. 53% of the votes this year were cast by women, who favored president obama by ten points. >> my wife's a democrat, and she was so close to voting for mitt romney. but then you know, mourdock and akin opened their mouth and we sent them squeak -- running back to the democratic party because they think we're nutty. >> actually, married women tended to favor mitt romney, but single women, a growing part of the population, went 3-1 for the president. >> i have just called president obama to congratulate him on his victory. >> republicans have two years until the midterms to try to shed a little of the old off the grand old party and reach out to a quickly changing american demographic. they do not lack for suggestions. >

down together. >> all right. the latest recount in florida shows congressman allen west trailing his democratic challenger patrick murphy by nearly 2,000 votes. west, a tea party favorite, is trying to keep this seat representing florida's 18th congressional district. unofficial numbers posted on sunday evening on the florida secretary of state's website give murphy an edge, 166,257 to 164,353 for west. >>> all right. 2016 is a long way away, but florida senator marco rubio sure looked like a presidential candidate during a visit to iowa. rubio appeared saturday night at a big fund-raiser for iowa governor terry branstad. in his speech, rubio discussed the future of the republican party and issued a host -- and addressed a host of issues including tax reform, the national debt, energy and immigration policy. >> christine, you were in iowa giving a speech, as well, weren't you? did you run into each other? >> no, but they were all buzzing about how he was going to be there and democrats are saying look, here we go again. republicans are saying marco rubio. already in iowa they were ta
, senator from florida, arguably one of the biggest -- maybe the biggest -- republican winner on tuesday. people are looking at him as someone who can help the party thread the needle of finding a way to talk to the new generation, finding a way to talk to more of america. but a couple of hurdles that marco rubio has that his advisers are very aware of. one is, you have to find a way to talk in a more compelling, broader way for the party without alienating the most conservative people who are the base of the party, control the nomination. when we hear marco rubio talk about immigration, we're going to be hear him talk in biographical terms, talking about his parents, worked as a hotel maid, a bartender before they came to america from cuba. the other thing that they're very conscious of is they don't want him to be the latino candidate. marco rubio is going to offer himself as a compelling conservative, but someone who can also talk to hispanic-americans about why republican values should be their values. and that includes family values, that includes entrepreneurism, a free market. joe
recount in florida shows west trailing his democratic challenger, patrick murphy by almost 2,000 votes. unofficial numbers posted just yesterday evening give murphy 166,257 votes to 164,353 for west. >> but who's counting. during the recount, actually, murphy's lead grew. so things are looking worse by the day for allen west. >>> justin bieber sweeps, he took the honors last night at the american music awards winning the artist of the year award with long with two other trophies. bieber also had a message for his detractors. >> first of all i want to say, i want to say, this is for all the haters who thought that, you know, that maybe i was just here for one or two years. i feel like i'm going to be here for a very long time. >> take that haters. meanwhile, the vanilla ice right there? >> a little bit. >> good for you, bieber. nicki minaj won for favorite rap hip-hop album and artist. taylor swift took her fifth consecutive award for favorite country artist. the night ended with a super special smash up. the south korean rapper behind gangnam style teaming up on this performance. >> do
reelection with 303 electoral votes with florida's 29 still undetermined and over 50% of the popular vote. the national journal hosted several panel discussions breaking down the road to results and looking at the implications for national politics and the congressional agenda. >> it turned out not to be as long night as people expected and we're going to talk about that today and why and look forward to how the president to make go forward from this victory which think is safe to say it was quicker and bigger than many people expected. would you like to tell us how this happened and -- why this happened and how? >> it was bigger than we expected. he really swept the battleground states. the only states that he lost that he had won in 2008, was north carolina which he had won by 14,000 votes in 2008. it was considered a fluke. what that tells us is that the set of assumptions that the obama campaign was operating on was correct. and a set of assumptions that the romney campaign was operating on was not. it's sort of make sense in a way sense obama's theory about the campaign turned out to
miami-dade is done but a handful of florida counties are still counting votes from tuesday's election. time is about up, though. those counties have to report unofficial tallies in the state by noon tomorrow. the results will be certified november 20th. cnn has not declared a winner in florida yet. but democrats there have put the win in president obama's column. and mitt romney's team in florida told the miami herald their candidate lost the state. no rush, it's florida. if they get it within a week that's still pretty fast for them. >> they need to get their act to the. i feel like florida, on the lines thing, on the counting thing. we are in the technological age. it is time to move and fix it. that's my editorializing this morning. let's go back to the fiscal cliff. we also should get a little counter for the fiscal cliff. 53 days. christine's got an update on what it will mean if we hit it in 53 days. >> pretty alarming report out from the congressional budget office about this. it said in the post-election report on the fiscal cliff, it will lead to a recession and a spike in un
. >> it took four days, but florida went for president obam abringing the final electoral college to 332 for the president and 206. and gary johnson scored tens of thousands of votes in key swing states and mixed up the race with those with razor-thin margins. how does he feel now? former governor of new england is here by skype. >> jamie: great to be with you. i really thought we would get more votes. we didn't have the resources to be able to tell, you know, where the votes were going to come from. but the polls would have said, we were guessing we were going to do better. it just got down to the wire and i think people bought into the fact that people have to vote for romneyor obama because it was going to be close. >> even so, with the top two contenders apparently so close. you scored more than 1.2 million votes in key swing states. 32,000 in colorado, 45,000 in north carolina, 47,000 in ojaio and in virginia, 30,000-plus. florida, nearly 45,000. these are states that were very, very scploas these two teams spent a lot of money and yet, tens of thousands of people had to have waited
won't feel so heated. i am still roasting from the florida sun. sun burned too. thank you for coming coming in. >> i'm flat out of time, otherwise i would go on and on. you know i would. newsroom international starts next with saws ann malveaux. >>> welcome to newsroom international. i'm suzanne malveaux. want to get right to it. a major story we are watching this hour in arizona. former congresswoman gabby giffords face-to-face with the man who shot her. giffords and her husband mark kelli are in a tucson courtroom right now for the sentencing of jerry lee loughner. he is expected to get life in prison after he struck a plea deal to avoid the death penalty. loughner pleaded guilty to a shooting rampage that left six people dead and 13 wounded, including giffords, who was shot in t head at point-blank range. it happened at an event she was holding in 2011. giffords will not speak in court today, but her husband will. nor on the sentencing later in the hour. >>> folks in the northeast hit super hard by sandy are dealing with even more misery today. a nor'easter has now hammered the re
carolina was the only battleground state that romney won. >> that is correct. florida is still out. this year is turned out to be irrelevant. what did the republicans miss? >> practically anybody who was brown or black, procter we anybody who believes that immigration is an issue that needs to be tackled. was a case where the republican party is stampeding towards prevalence if they don't catch -- stampeding toward irrelevance up to then't catch new america and the changing demographics. you cannot have a ruling coalition that is virtually all white. you had president obama put together this new rising coalition and put together enough of the old democratic coalition to win. he got more than 70% of hispanics. young voters. if you vote once to twice as a democrat, history shows that there will be a lifetime democrats. the republicans are missing the idea of trying to expand their percentage of a shrinking electorate. this is becoming a majority- minority nation. this is probably the last time the republicans love a chance to win like this. >> let's talk about why this happened. how
a difference in florida, virginia, nevada, and colorado? >> no. it wouldn't have made enough of a difference in this election. but if marco rubio is the presidential candidate, in 2016, and the party begins to advocate, enforcement, plus amnesty after enforcement, i think it will be a sea change. i think you will get a revolution of the hispanic vote. i think it will restore all this talk about how republics are demographickics ticket is nonsense. >> thank you as always. >> a pleasure. >> bill: factor tip of the day about you and christmas. the tip 60 seconds away. >> bill: i'm glad you are talking to the kids about thisi. lisa. zbloogt thinking why beed bus end >> bill: we can find no such evidence, charles. if you have it. please forward it to me. >> bill: wow, that is some great wife, tim. especially since the vegas show is sold out. the only one that still has seats is in houston. contend and lincoln number three and kennedy number one.
the assignments. we got a letter from a high school student in florida who said here's what she does to complete your assignment that would require internet access. she drives to her local library at night after it is closed, and sits in the parking lot where she can get wi-fi hookup. but that's not a good answer the digital divide is a good issue and smart government action can help drive universal access. this is what drove the fcc last year to adopt a once in a generation comprehensive overhaul of the $4.5 billion a year universal service fund. we transformed it from a telephone focused program and one at that, too inefficient program focus on universal broadband. so these pillars and priorities not only guide our policy work in the united states. they guide our international engagement in the i.t. sector. and they have in the past, historically. in ways that it had a profound affect. to explain how, let me take a detour into the arab spring. in egypt last year, when they can shut down the internet, shutdown global service, many asked how are they able to do that. what does it mean they can d
marco rubio from florida and jeb bush and say give us some instructions. tell us what we're doing wrong because republicans are not going to change what they relieve. they're republicans for reason the same way democrats are democrats for a reason. should those principles be of greater appeal to hispanics? the answer is probably guess. somehow that is being lost in the debate among other things about immigration. dennis: did mitt romney get hurt by taking a hard line on immigration which does not play well with hispanic voters? >> no doubt that happened. the got pushed to the right or allow himself to get pushed on to the right on emigration and wasn't able to take the lifeline that marco rubio threw him in the general election when he said here is a dream act, a way for young children of illegal immigrants who have gone to school and played by the rules or maybe even in the military to get legal status. couldn't embrace that because he had been pushed too far to the right. those of the issues that will be read debated within the republican party starting today. >> black unemployment ro
in the code. that takes the states like california and arizona and florida out of the business and i was telling us how we're going to raise hens and produce eggs. that is an important piece that has been a fight in this campaign, that has not had it not apply, but that is something we have to have in the farm bill, and that is what i want to get into conference by the end of the year. >> i hope if the farm bill comes to the floor is an open roll, the amendment process can take place. i expect the conservatives to -- i do not know if we have the votes for it -- but at least we will start that the debate, separating the food stamp provisions from the other policies. since i am surrounded by other states, the other gentleman would like to speak as well. >> speaking as one who campaign in support of the house bill, without apology, i can tell you the farmers of north dakota like the house bill just fine, and not only did they have an objection to $16 billion more in cuts to a program that has grown 50% in the last four years, it only amounts to a 2% cut in the food stamp program, they l
